We have a free drop-off and pick-up area which is over at our Long Stay car park. Customers can park in the Long Stay for a duration of 30 min free of charge.

Taxi drop-off and pick-up

If you need a taxi but haven't booked you can head on over to the East Terminus, just across the plaza from the main terminal, where there will be black cabs and private hire vehicles.

Already booked your taxi? No problem – just arrange to meet them in the Pick-Up Zone on the ground floor of the MultiStorey car park.

Taxis can drop off passengers in either the Drop-Off Zone opposite the terminal or in the free drop-off zone in the LongStay car park.

The free drop-off area is in the LongStay car park, so you’ll need to take the walking route and only takes around 6-8 minutes.

You can also pre-book your taxi from the airport via our partners Edinburgh City Private Hire.
